Winter Solstice is the darkest day of the year but after this day we start climbing back into more light. This painting is meant to express the mystery of those dark days and the emptying out of sadness and struggle. It is a time of letting go of the things we have been holding on to that no longer serve us and feeling our true nature return to us and fill us with light. Her shadow is showing us wings, which represent the fact that she is more than she appears to be and again as with most references to wings in my work…they are a statement that Great Spirit/God/Goddess is present.
